Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
I hook my camera to the computer, but the computer doesn't recognize it's there. I tried to reload the software, but the software was still there. I've tried several new cords, but it didn't help.
Although I haven't had this issue with my S2 IS specifically, I have with 2 other digital cameras. The solution in both cases was to power the camera on BEFORE plugging in the USB cable.
In other words - Plug the computer end of the USB cable into the computer, do not plug the camera end in. Power up the camera in "picture view" mode, THEN plug the USB cable into the camera.
Not sure about Vista, but with XP, you should hear the familiar "Dong-ding" as the system recognizes the camera.
